SMU Annual Fund
Programme Beneficiaries of the Fund
Students Historical Debts
Support for students historical debts programme:
This fund is aimed at assisting the SRC programme on paying off students historic debts
Support for food security programme:
The programme was conceived of following an observation that some of SMU students go a day without a decent meal. The programme therefore aim to mobilize resources in support of this need.
Support for students e-Learning gadgets programme:
Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, SMU is challenged to support its learning project via a multi-modal approach. The fund therefore aims to help needy students with learning gargets such as laptop, tablets and the requisite data.
Support for scholarship programme
Support for scholarship programme:
SMU is heavily reliant on NSFAS for student funding. This programme aims to augment the current bursary donor pool to the benefit of academically deserving yet needy students.
The objective of the fund is to mobilize resources for the University in support of its noble vision of transforming health services through excellence and innovation. This vision is inhibited by lack of social welfare for our students. To this end SMU therefore calls upon you to partner with us in our plight to raise philanthropic money to meet SMU students’ immediate social needs.
DEFINITION AND pURPOSE
An annual fund is the catch-all term for general nonprofit fundraising. It encompasses all fundraising efforts including online solicitation, direct mail asks, email appeals, and more. It does not include money raised during capital campaigns or for endowment funds. The fund is grown over time and the interest it earns can be used in areas where it is most needed. This means regular donations of any amount will make a difference to teaching and research excellence, scholarships, campus improvements, the student experience, and academic excellence at SMU. We invite partners who have an interest in developing a tertiary education sector that will provide highly skilled, qualified candidates for the workplace to contribute towards the SMU Annual Fund. Such contributions can be linked to an organisations area of interest, and can attract tax benefits and BBBEE certification.
All pledges are treated as confidential. Importantly though, please note that all donations will be legible for the South African Revenue Services’ Section 18A certificate tax benefit at the end of the financial year.
